 This is week is the democrat’s turn. They hold a national convention in Charlotte North Carolina beginning Tuesday. What do?? they hope to accomplish? Maryland governor Martin O’Malley is head of the democratic governors association. He told CNN they intended to show they are very different from the republicans. We're the party that is for social security and for Medicare. They're the party that whose choices will lead to insecurity for seniors and their policy is I don't care. Go get a voucher1. You figure it out. President Obama is already on his way to the convention in Charlotte visiting several battleground states along the way. Republican Mitt2 Romney is taking a break from the campaign trail for the next two days. NPR's Ari Shapiro reports after Labor3 Day weekend, Romney will begin debate preparations. 

Campaign advisor4 Kevin Madden says Romney will practice her debates in Vermont at the home of Kerry Healey. She was Mitt Romney's lieutenant5 governor in Massachusetts. Ohio senator Rob Portman will join him. Portman is playing the role of President Obama in mock debates. Before Romney flew home to New England Saturday night, his running Paul Ryan joined him at a river front rally in sweatering Jacksonville Florida. Ryan accused President Obama of violating his promise to bring people together. 
This is the third president I've served with and I have never seen this kind of partisan6 acrimony. I have never seen this much dysfunction in great? lock.  
Ryan's scheduled a campaign early next week in Iowa and North Carolina where democrats7 are holding their convention. Ari Shapiro, NPR News, travelling with the Romney campaign. 
Gulf8 coast officials say there are still hundreds of thousands of people without electricity in the sweatering heat. After hurricane Isaac last week thousands of people are still out of their homes. The storm's dropped as much as 20 inches of rain on Louisiana and Mississippi. The US army corps9 of engineers is investigating whether its new levy10 system built around New Orleans after hurricane Katina put other communities at greater risk. Eileen Fleming of member station WWNO reports that some residents say they're suffering unprecedented11 flooding after hurricane Isaac. 
The 14 billion dollar system designed to protect New Orleans performed as planned at its debut12 for storm protection. But some residents in communities south of the city and outside that system are asking if massive gates that shut ahead of Isaac sent storm surge to their neighborhoods. The Corp. issued a statement saying it will check the modeling use in the design for the system. It did not say when that review will be complete. For NPR News, I'm Eileen Fleming in New Orleans.
Church officials with the unification church say the reverent13 Sun Myung Moon has died. He was the self-proclaimed messiah who turned his church into a worldwide relis? movement. And he befriended North Korean leaders as well as US presidents. He died today near his home in South Korea. He was 92. 
This is NPR News.
Federal Aviation authorities say that flights at all 3 airports in the Washington DC area were stopped for a time this morning. They say a refrigerator caught fire at the facility that handles air traffic and control of the airports, stopping flights for about 25 minutes. Officials say fewer than 20 flights were affected14
The legal battle between Apple and Samsung continues despite Apple's recent billion dollar victory. NPR's Lori Hodges? reports.
Apple maintained a requested kill list of products throughout the lawsuit15 which accused Samsung of stealing its designs. The list originally contained 8 items that Apple demanded be taken out of the market. Now 2 of Samsung's biggest products have been added, the Galaxy16 S3 and the Galaxy Note. The Note is viewed as the biggest competitor to Apple's Ipad. 
Phone? Tablet? Feel free. It's Galaxy Note.
The S3 which was dubbed17 the Samsung flagship product and presented as an alternative to the iphone sold 10 million copies in its first 3 months on the market. Banning it could be a significant blow to the company's bottom line. The timing18 of Apple's request is crucial as they prepared to release a new iphone and new ipad in the next 2 months. Lauren Hodges, NPR News. 
A man suspected of a double murder in Detroit had to try twice to turn himself in. Police say the man had got into an argument at a party in open fire, killing19 2 people and wounding 2 others. The associated press says the suspect went to a fire station and the police were called. After waiting 2 hours for the police to come, the man went himself to a police station where he was arrested. A police statement said officers were busy handling high priority cases. 
I'm Nora Raum, NPR News in Washington.
